September 2015


In September we are celebrating the Art of Sculpture. Pennsylvania is the home to many famous sculptors, which you can see at the Brandywine River Museum of Art in Chadds Ford, the Philadelphia Museum of Art in the city and out in the open parks and towns across our county.  This is an area that inspires art and this month, every listed winery will highlight a different contemporary sculptor at their wine facility. Come for the wine and enjoy the art!
